Bob Dylan 30 year anniversary 93!

I have always been wondering - this was a great evening, I'm sure many of you have heard or seen it, but why didn't the GD play there??? Or JGB? Didn't Bob Dylan say that nobody covered his songs like Jerry? Which I would say is very true. I can't believe they weren't invited, does anybody have a clue?

Would A Delicate Sound of Thunder be the one? Pulse wasn't too bad either. I'm a Floyd fan though and really dig all there stuff.

Dude that might be it but actually now that I've thought deeper and thank you for the suggestion it's not it but it does have a name similar to that. The only reason I continue with this is because if you've heard this recording you'd remember it for life. Unfortunately that dosn't apply for the title of this album for me..

There is also Live at Pompeii.

I don't know if you ever go to wolfgang's vault, but it has some nice shows to stream.

I haven't listened to the '77 show but the '70 show is a monster.

Different strokes for different folks. I loved when Bob did Girl From The North Country and It's Alright, Ma.

Some of the show's high water marks for me were Just Like A Woman from Richie Havens (very subtle, but seething with electricity) and You Ain't Goin' Nowhere from Mary Chapin Carpenter, Shawn Colvin, and Roseanne Cash (hugely energetic, and surprisingly so at that). Eric showed what a master he is at interpreting a song and reinventing it as blues, too, with Don't Think Twice. And there is not a gospel choir in the world that could have had a thing on the O'Jays' rendition of Emotionally Yours.

That show has always been a big "what might have been" kind of thing for me. If anybody deserved to be on that stage, it would have to be Jerry and/or the Dead. How cool it would have been to see him with George, Eric, Neil, McGuinn, and Bob for My Back Pages. And the wealth of Dylan material he or they could have drawn from their own repertoire was enormous: Tangled Up In Blue; Simple Twist of Fate; It's All Over Now, Baby Blue; Desolation Row; Stuck Inside of Memphis, etc., etc. But it also occurs to me how far out of the loop the producer(s) of that soiree very well could have been with regard to the whole Dylan & The Dead thing, and how they might have been sorely overlooked in the booking of guest acts. And even if Jerry had been healthy at the time, the Dead's touring schedule by that point was so busy, it probably would have precluded a chance for any of them to be there anyway.

PS: I saw the Bob segment of American Masters on PBS last night. Always entertaining to see him speak about his work, especially at this stage in his life. He expresses his impressions of those early years of his career with such nonchalance, and it comes off as simple honesty, not some kind of humble affectation.
